My portfolio hasn’t changed much over last few weeks (again MUCH is a relative term;)). But first let’s pledge our allegiance to Mr. Bernanke,the great savior of the markets. Mr Bernanke came out once again to mitigate the impact of bad job numbers. I guess sooner or later Bruce Wayne will have competition.
Four weeks ago I told my colleague that I am seeing very strong buy signals. In last four years I have seen such signal fail only twice. So I went all in! WooHoo!!
I added eight new stocks and two ETFs to the portfolio in last month. I also got rid of EQIX at $199. I am thinking of adding ULTA and getting back into EQIX – Nothing as of now. I will talk about them in details in the next post.
I sold TFM due to the breakdown. I also bought and sold CRUS – bought it at $35.5 and sold it at $40.1. I am surprised by it’s move to $45 – apple effect. I also unloaded STX after a long time. I plan on hanging on with only one high beta disk drive company.
Some people might say that I own a lot of stocks but I have been tracking most of these companies for over 3 years and buy and sell signals are generated by programs. I own a lot of stocks because I dont want to overexpose myself to anyone company. The companies that I own is a mix of fast growers and slow growers (called GARP). There are handful of value stocks as well such as APA, F, HAL, etc.
Please talk to me before jumping in because we are due a 4 to 5% correction before the Santa Claus rally starts. Also being an election year, the market has to end in positive (+16% isn’t too bad either). What I mean is that we might remain flat for rest of the year. Lastly, I plan on taking some profits off the table by selling some ALXN, UA,LNKD, JPM, etc.
